Wonky Blocks

Well, that was fast!  I have now finished the front of the quilt.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!

For the front, I decided to alternate the direction of the blocks and only add sashing strips around the outer edges:

It looks pretty good, right? 

However, when we get up nice and close, we hear the whomp-whomp of the sad trombone...turns out my seams do not line up.

My seams never line up!  That is my number one failing as a quilter.  Oh well.  I, personally, think that wonky seams give my quilts a homey, lived-in look.  Also, I should cut myself some slack...this is only the third quilt I've made.  So not too shabby, considering!
